"I figured that’s where you guys would be," Bradford joked after a workout.

Sam, the first openly gay player drafted in the NFL, met with reporters on Friday. The team is hoping the hubbub will die down eventually and Sam will be treated like any other seventh-round pick.

"I think the media doesn’t give athletes enough credit for just accepting players as they are," said wide receiver T.J. Moe, who was Sam’s teammate at Missouri. "They just assume it’s a tough-guy culture, and ‘How are they possibly going to handle it?’ I think maybe it’s the other way around. How are the media handling it?"

Bradford, the first overall pick in 2010, is more than five months removed from left knee surgery and said everything is on schedule. The quarterback is expected to practice Friday.
